A Christmas to Remember by Katie Flynn

A Christmas to RememberA Christmas to Remember by Katie Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have loved Katie Flynn's book since, oh...forever and never been disappointed.

This story is about a young girl, her Grandmother, the kids that are bullying her and a shop owner. It all ties in nicely as all of Katie's previous books have also.

Kept me enthralled through out, and definitely should be on your Christmas books to be read.

The only downside to this story was the name she chose for someone, I didn't want know whether to laugh or deflate and go urgggg awful. SNOWY WHITE??? c'mon.

BLURB

A few days before Christmas Tess Williams rushes into Albert Payne's tobacconist shop, with two boys in hot pursuit, saying she's a thief. Albert chases the boys away, and though Tess does not realise it, this incident changes her life.





Tess lives with her grandmother, Edie, in a small flat on Heyworth Street in Norwich.She has recently returned from Bell Farm, where she was evacuated during the war, and is being bullied by her schoolmates, but when the handsome Snowy White comes to her rescue she thinks her troubles are over, and returns for a working holiday to Bell Farm and her old friend Jonty.





This leaves Edie to her own devices, however, and Tess is jealous of the friendship which blossoms between her grandmother and the tobacconist.Yet though Tess resents Albert, it is to him she turns when things start to go wrong
